Retail chain applies measures to go green

VinGroup-run VinMart and VinMart+ supermarket system on Friday launched a program to protect the environment by a three-green solution: green supermarkets, green customers and green suppliers.

Single-use plastic products will be replaced with environmental friendly materials at 2,200 VinMart and VinMart+ supermarkets. Degradable shopping bags will be provided and paper cups, bowls and straws will be used for catering services.

In order to encourage the involvement from customers, VinMart and VinMart+ will discount 1,000 VND in each receipt of customers using multiple-use shopping bags. The supermarkets will gather used batteries and send them to specified agencies for treatment. For suppliers, VinMart and VinMart+ will give a number of special incentives for those who provide environmental friendly products.
